Nutrition is the study of how substances in foods relate to the growth, health, disease, reproduction and maintenance of human life. Students may learn about catabolism, assimilation, intake, absorption, biosynthesis and excretion during this education path.

The United States of America is a large country in Northern America, often known as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". It also gathers over 310 million people which is the world's third largest population. It includes densely populated cities with sprawling suburbs, and vast, uninhabited and naturally beautiful areas at the same time.

Our PhD program is acknowledged as a STEM program according to the Carnegie classification. Over the last 20 years, there has been an increased research focus on the role of exercise and nutrition on health, performance, and disease. There has also been an increased interest in identifying strategies to reduce the risk of chronic diseases through behavioral modification and wellness intervention programs. The goal of this research has been to identify ways to optimize performance, health, and quality of life. Clinically-related research on preventive and rehabilitative health represents one of the strongest areas for private and public funding. There are also significant resources available to implement community-based fitness and wellness education programs, particularly to under-served communities. Historically, research in this area has been conducted in a multidisciplinary manner through the collaborative efforts of scientists trained in exercise physiology, nutrition, rehabilitation, health, psychology, chemistry, molecular biology, nursing, and/or medicine. While this collaborative approach has been successful, there has been a well-recognized need to develop doctoral programs that integrate exercise science and nutrition so that researchers are better prepared to conduct multidisciplinary health science research. Our program is one of few designed to train specialists in the areas of exercise science and nutrition. -
